Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis drugs are used to treat the infection and reduce the risk of complications. These drugs are typically antibiotics, antivirals, or antifungals, and may be administered orally, intravenously, or intramuscularly. Commonly used antibiotics include cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, and vancomycin. Antivirals such as acyclovir and valacyclovir are used to treat viral meningitis, while antifungals such as amphotericin B and fluconazole are used to treat fungal meningitis.
Meningitis drugs are part of the larger Central Nervous System (CNS) drug market, which includes drugs used to treat a variety of neurological conditions. These drugs are used to treat conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease.
Some companies in the Meningitis Drug market include Pfizer, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, and Sanofi. Show Less Read more
